All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG PC)
The All Party Parliamentary Group on Pancreatic Cancer (APPG PC) was established in June 2012. This is an interest group of parliamentarians from across the political parties and from both the Houses of Commons and Lords. The Chair is Nic Dakin MP, for other members click here.
- Reduce the number of patients being diagnosed as an emergency from 50% to 33% by 2018
- Increase the level of research funding for pancreatic cancer from £5 million per annum to £20 million per annum by 2015
- Ensure that ALL pancreatic cancer patients are seen by a pancreatic cancer specialist upon diagnosis (sadly this doesn’t always happen!)
All MPs, Peers and political researchers can attend the APPG PC meetings. Please encourage your MP to come along and support this. Click here for tips on how to do this.
